Varus charges for up to 4 seconds to gradually increase Piercing Arrow's range and damage while being slowed by 20%. Piercing Arrow can be recast at any time within its duration.

If the charge completes without reactivation, Piercing Arrow is canceled, refunding 50% of its mana cost.

ACTIVE: Varus fires a piercing arrow in the target direction, dealing physical damage to all enemies struck. The arrow's damage and any Blight stacks detonated are increased by 0−50% (depending on channel time), arrow damage is reduced by 0−67% (depending on enemies hit).

Varus' basic attacks deal 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 (+25% of ability power) bonus magic damage and apply a stack of Blight for 6 seconds, stacking up to 3 times, refreshing on subsequent attacks.

Varus' other abilities consume stacks of Blight on enemies upon damaging them to deal 3 / 3.5 / 4 / 4.5 / 5% (+2% per 100 ability power) of the target's maximum health bonus magic damage and, if they are a champion or epic monster, reduce his basic abilities' cooldowns by 12% of the maximum cooldown for each stack on the target, up to 36% per target. The bonus damage is capped at 360 against monsters.

ACTIVE: Varus' next Piercing Arrow deals 6−14% of the target's missing health bonus magic damage (depending on level), increased by 0−80% (depending on Piercing Arrow's channel time), for a maximum of 10.8-25.2% of the target's missing health (depending on level). This damage is capped at 360 against monsters. If Varus is not charging Piercing Arrow, Blighted Quiver may be recast after 1 second and will go on a 1 second cooldown if it isn't used within 5.5 seconds of its activation or immediately if Varus dies.

Blighted Quiver can be cast during the first 0.25 seconds of Piercing Arrow's charge. Blighted Quiver is placed on full cooldown even if the charge completes without reactivation or is interrupted.

Varus fires a hail of arrows that deal 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+0.6 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and desecrate the ground. Desecrated ground slows enemies' Movement Speed by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45% for .25 seconds and reduces their healing and regeneration by 40%. The slow duration is refreshed if enemies stay within the zone.

100 / 80 / 60 / 60 / 60
Varus flings out a tendril of corruption in the target direction that infects the first enemy champion hit, dealing 150 / 200 / 250 (+100% of ability power) magic damage, revealing and rooting them for 2 seconds while inflicting them with full stacks of Blight over 1.5 seconds.

On impact, the tendril seeks out nearby enemy champions for 2 seconds, after which they are also infected. Tendrils will continue to spread until there are no champions in range that have not already been affected.

Chain of Corruption will attempt to spread even if the first target dies or becomes free of the root. The tendril seeks targets regardless of having sight of them or not.
